if i were to turn my ipod on shuffle, it might go a little something like this:

blue spotted tail: fleet foxes
hotel yorba: white stripes
it aint me babe: june and johnny cash
these days: nico
chicago: sufjan stevens
fortunate son: CCR
look up: bradley hathaway
road sweet home: brandon white (aka my darling husband)
she belongs to me: bob dylan
wake me up before you go-go: wham
butterfly nets: bishop allen
white shoes: conner oberst

and then I'd likely put that last song on repeat and listen to it again and again and again.

what's playing on your ipod?

***it's a well known fact in my family that i'm no finder of great music. luckily both my sister and husband have good ears. so heres a shout-out to you guys! If it weren't for you my list would consist of B. spears and disney soundtracks...

***only a few more days till this giveaway ends!


  1. I enjoy the fact that Look Up and Butterfly Nets are on here. :) Thanks for the shout out tissa. I wish you were here to randomly drop in with your husband and keep me company. Luff.

  2. Right now, First Aid Kit, Lykke Li, Bon Iver, and Neil Young are taking over my itunes.

    I think it's all this rainy weather.

  3. The last few days: Belle & Sebastian, Radiohead, The Shins, Death Cab for Cutie, and Gran Ronde.

  4. The Avett Brothers, Band of Horses, and Bobby Bare Jr. are always good. I get a lot of my music from a podcast called "KEXP Song of the Day." Carmen should take note.

  5. I don't have an ipod. But I do have some nice cassettes by Simon and Garfunkle, Bread, and Dan Fogelberg. Technology so confuses me...

    So do word verifications. Pnonchl? Please.
